Sand­grop­ers urged to snap their out­door ad­ven­tures

Midwest Times - - NEWS -

West Aus­tralians are be­ing en­cour­aged to share out­doors snaps to so­cial me­dia as the weather warms up and more peo­ple head out­side.

The #Out­doorsOc­to­ber photo com­pe­ti­tion, part of Out­doors Oc­to­ber, will run all month.

Win­ners will share in ad­ven­ture prizes such as a nearer to na­ture voucher, a sun­set yoga hike, star trek march and mini re­treat.

Out­doors Oc­to­ber is run to cel­e­brate WA’s nat­u­ral land­scape and re­mind peo­ple of the range of out­door ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer.

Sport and Recre­ation Min­is­ter Mick Mur­ray said af­ter a long, cold win­ter, it was time to en­joy the out­doors.

“West­ern Aus­tralia’s nat­u­ral land­scape is in­cred­i­bly spe­cial, so if you’re not a reg­u­lar vis­i­tor to the out­doors, this is the time to get out and go for a walk, find a cy­cle path or take to the wa­ter,” he said.

“Be­ing out­doors is not only good for your phys­i­cal health, it’s great for your men­tal well­be­ing too, so why not try a new ac­tiv­ity or just grab some mates for a game in your lo­cal park.”

Events can be reg­is­tered on out­doorsoc­to­ber.com.au.
